Hello  and  welcome  come in it is lovely  to see you all here again. The fires are lit  the cushions are plumped up and  we have  the coffee and tea on  the go  and the cakes and sweets are all set out.  We  have  tea  and coffee  from all over  the world not to mention all our cakes  and muffins  and  as Paul  calls  them sweets! Every single  one  is  calorie  free! Plus of course  we now have spirits  and liquors  to warm the coldest of  you.

If we were having  Coffee: I would ask  you what  has been going on in your world this week, has  anything  deeply affected  you, have  you need a sympathetic ear, a shoulder to cry  on or  just  needed someone  to make  you laugh! If  yes  feel free to talk it out  here  with us. We will all help if  we can.

If we were having Coffee: I would  remind  you  that  there  are lots of  other  coffee mornings  all shared  and organized  By  Diana  and  Gene’O  over at,Part time monster   and it is growing like Topsie!

What  a week it has been  and  If we were having Coffee: I would  tell  you all it  has  been a busy  week  in  blog  land  as well as in  the real world. I entered  the 1000 Voices  Speak  for Compassion, Set up  by Yvonne Spence you can read  her  entry  here  and mine  if  you have not  already  seen it  here . It  was  a truly  amazing  venture  and I hope  that  even if  each post  only  effected  one  or  two  people  that  would  be a massive  win! Well done  to every one  who  took  part.

Well how are  you, would  you like some  more  coffee or  maybe  some  cake we  have plenty.

If we were having coffee I have  also been busy  all month  doing Love is in Da Blog  organised  by Just fooling Around With Bee.  Boy  she has  kept  us on  our  toes  with  her prompts. So  if  you interested  in  joining  in  for  the last  week in Feb do  feel free  to jump in  here .

If  we  were having Coffee: I would  tell you  that  it  has  been  a busy week in the real  world  the livingroom is  progressing , almost  finished now, pictures up, lighting  all sorted , fireplace in and televion hanging on the wall above  said  fireplace! Really all we are awaiting is  the furniture.

The usual visits  to the gym and core  and pilates lessons. Thursday was fun L ( my  gym buddy) and I took a trip to Oxford  on the bus… It was great fun  even though  it was pouring  with rain all day. We had a look around  the shops  and took a little  trip  round  the back streets  and looked in at  the  beautiful quadrangles  of  the Universities   through their open gates! We  also had a look around  the covered  Market  and looked  at the butchers  and fishmongers  and  found  the most amazing  cake shop! Navy  and white  floral cak Street View

It was  a lovely  day  out, as I said  in a post  earlier  this  week I spent  a lot of  time in Oxford  as a child.

If  we were having coffee: I say  well I don’t  have a lot  more  to report so I  look forward to seeing you all next  week!

And of course  the

Love is in Da Blog : Friends

Just Fooling Around With Bee said : this last week is dedicated to The love of friends!

Okay  before I say  anything  lets  see  what Alanis  Morrisette has  to say  on the matter !


There  are all types of  friends, good  and bad

Some  a phone call away  who’ll see  you though happy  or  sad.

Friends  who are great  at shopping  and  those who like a drink

Some  just like to mess about  and  some  who will help you  think.


When  things  go wrong  and life  gets  tough

Most  friends disapear when things  get rough

But you  will be  surprised at those  who stay

And  help you cope with  the black, black day


I do have  some  very  good friends  and  I  shall be  looking  into  all different  types  of  friends  this  week, Thanks  be  for making me think!

This  is  Just  fooling  around  with  Bee  Idea  for  a  February  daily  challenge! To  suit  her  spoilt  inner  child…. and  mine  come  to that so  here  we go! Hold on to your heart!  Join in  here    and  here
